Sakai Takayuki Knives has been cultivated through a long 600-year history in Sakai.
The Grand Chef series is a durable razor-sharp knife made in Sakai Japan, using the highest-grade quality material, Swedish stainless steel by Bohler-Uddeholm, superior to the steel by the Sandvik.
The blade is 100% entirely made of this special stainless steel alloy which has very low impurities and is highly rust resistant and offers exceptional sharpness which is hardened to about HRC 61~62.
So the knife lasts a very long time (longer than others!) as some chefs gave feedback,
"For the longer time I use it, I must have more understood the competitive advantage and sharpness durability of the Grand Chef."
In addition, the steel makes hard, sharp cutting edges with surprisingly easy re-sharpening, like Japanese traditional knives made of "Hagane".
